Party tips from beauty obsessed girls
From a heat protection hair mask to a scented body scrub, everyone’s got their pre-Christmas party beauty rituals.
We interview Christmas party enthusiast Holly on her pampering beauty tips and secrets.
“I’ve always struggled to do my make up in the office and as this year’s Christmas party falls on my birthday, I’ve decided to take the whole day off to pamper myself.
For a classic party look, I always go for big sexy hair (blow dried upside down) and big eyes, using plenty of volumising products for both hair and lashes. I’d love to try out the Braun Satin-Hair 7 Airstyler , as I think it would really cut down on the drying and curling time. I’m putting it on my Christmas gift list!
As far as makeup goes, I always go for a red lipgloss and berry red glittery nail varnish, with an extra top coat to make them really glossy. Red for Christmas might be a little obvious, but with a name like Holly, you can't blame me for going all-out!”
Editor’s Christmas beauty tips and secrets:
• Go for a facial one week before your Christmas party. The winter months can make your skin look so dull, even the nicest foundation can’t give you back your sparkle. If you’re at home, treat yourself to a pampering session with the Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa epilator. Combining epilation with exfoliation, it’s the perfect way to kick of your party with smooth sexy legs.
• Cheat your way to a perfect pedi by scrubbing your feet with a loofah and sugar to remove dead skin. When you’re done cover them in moisturiser and pop on a pair of toasty socks. Leave for at least 20 minutes before washing off and adding sparkly nail varnish. Give some new styles a go for perfect party feet!
• Christmas is the one time of the year you can sparkle like a fairy so be liberal with the glitter. Add some sparkle to lips, chest and cheeks as well as your eyes. You’re bound to steal the show.
